Inspired by his recent USO Tour. Brantley's got what will be a big song for him.
Here's part of Brantley's message to BG Nation/fans. He says "this song references the loss of a US military soldier who was as close to kin to one of my closest friends from my home town... who witnessed his loss first hand while serving in active duty in Iraq... My friend shared the story with me to an extent where I felt like I was right there with him... And inspired me to write more than one song, including this one, about him... The other reference in this song is about the loss of a very dear, long time, and hometown friend of mine... Who we lost to a battle with cancer... In his battle with his disease, he showed more courage and faith than words can say, and it was that courage and faith that inspired me to write the second verse of this song about him... this song is very dear to my heart... that being said, with the inspiration from our USO tour, and for all the support y'all have given me, and being apart of this amazing movement we're in together, I wanted y'all to hear this first... So I'm "leaking" this to y'all... The BG Nation... Without charge, and without permission... as a way of saying thank you, and to give y'all a little preview of the new record... This is just a demo... ( not the final album cut)... So it's a little rough, but feel free to hit the "share" button and send this around..."
All I can say is wow. Did my part in sharing it with you. Feel free to share this page with your friends and family that will appreciate the songs meaning.
